George earned his sentence of 25 yrs. It is the least he can serve due to the circumstances of the murder. Being drunk is NO excuse - he is a typical AH who could not keep from drinking and doing things he shouldn't. From abuse of his GF to her murder - shame on him - you do the crime you do the time.

We can only hope! Haven't we all had enough of these overpriveleged, underachieving bullies in this world? Alcohol can be no excuse. Hopefully, this might be a lesson to all those beautiful young girls out there who accept the sort of behavior he showed to Yeardley. Abuse is NEVER acceptable.
